Posted on November 20th, 2018 by


SAINT PETER, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s hockey team played host to the College of St. Scholastica Saints on Tuesday night and came away with a 4-1 victory. With the win the Gusties move to 5-1-1 overall while the Saints moved to 5-3-1.

On the contest, coach Mike Carroll said, “We had some really nice plays offensively, but I didn’t think we played very consistent with our defensive zone. They did a good job in the first period with a different kind of forecheck we haven’t seen much before. After the first period we adjusted to it and did much better. Anytime you get a win at home it’s good and our last game at home didn’t go our way, so that was a good way to go home for Thanksgiving.”

The Gusties got the scoring going early when they put up two goals in the first period. Lilia Scheid (Fy., Stillwater, Minn.) scored a power play goal at the 11:16 mark to get the scoring started off an assist from Grace Schulte (Fy., Little Falls, Minn.). Less than seven minutes later, Amelia Vosen (Jr., Nowthen, Minn.) found the back of the net at the 17:45 mark with assists going to Jamie Byrne (Fy., Delano, Minn.) and Stephanie Anderson (Fy., Blaine, Minn.).

In the second period, the Gusties were short-handed and Allie Stanger (Jr., Paynesville, Minn.) found Kristina Press (Fy., Cottage Grove, Minn.) who took a shot for a score at the 10:24 mark to take a 3-0 lead.

At the 12:23 mark of the third period, the Saints got a power play goal to bring them within two but Press scored an empty net goal at the 18:59 mark with an assist going to Sydney Henrichs (So., Eden Prairie, Minn.) to put the game out of reach.

Amanda DiNella (Sr., Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.) got the start in net again and made 12 saves while allowing the one goal.

The Gusties outshot the Saints by a tally of 24-13, and were 1-3 on the power play compared St. Scholastica’s 1-5. The Gusties also scored their first short handed goal of the season.

The Gusties will next be in action on Friday, Nov. 30th when they host Bethel for a 7 p.m. contest.
